The first girls’ agricultural school in Palestine will be opened on April 8th by Lady Samuel, wife of the former High Commissioner.

The school was established by the International Women’s Zionist Organization at Nahalal.

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, who is expected to arrive here, will preside at the function. The building, which will house the school, is the most imposing structure in the Valley of Jezreel, and was erected at a cost of £7,000, largely contributed by the Canadian chapters of the Hadassah.

The school is the first of its kind in the Middle East. Forty pupils are attending.
